Perched high on a hill just outside the Jasper National Park East Gates in Alberta, Overlander Mountain Lodge has a spectacular view of the Athabasca Valley in Jasper National Park. Overlander makes a great base for exploring both Jasper National Park and the Hinton area. However, there is no reason to leave the lodge as it is a perfect weekend getaway destination all on its own. With fantastic mountain views, a great restaurant, and over 25 km of hiking trails there are plenty of activities to keep guests entertained all weekend. For instance, one trail leads to Folding Mountain Brewery which makes for a great lunch destination. Whereas another trail leads Brule Lake and the famous Brule sand dunes. The Overlander Mountain Lodge is a peaceful location that is also perfectly suited to relaxation and reading a good book. Since the lodge faces west and has sweeping views of Jasper National Park it is an ideal location for catching a perfect Canadian Rocky Mountain sunset.

Overlander Mountain Lodge has an excellent location. It is only 15 minutes to the Town of Hinton, 20 minutes to William A Switzer Provincial Park, and 20min to the Miette Hot Springs (open spring-early fall). Additionally, it is a beautiful 40-minute drive through the Rocky Mountains to reach the Jasper Townsite.

Even if not staying at the Overlander Mountain Lodge it is worth visiting to go for a hike and to grab a meal at Stone Peak Restaurant while enjoying the sweeping view of the Athabasca Valley in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. Overlander Mountain Lodge is truly a jewel of the Canadian Rockies.

The Overlander Mountain Lodge sign greets visitors as they arrive. In the background you can see the main lodge as well as Folding Mountain. I was particularly looking forward to our weekend getaway at Overlander. It is the perfect combination of a charming and cozy log cabin mountain getaway that I love with great food and lots of hiking trails. Incredibly, this photo was taken at 4:36pm after our 1km hike. Showing how quickly it gets dark in Alberta in December.

The fireside lounge in the main building at Overlander Mountain Lodge is a cozy place to relax and enjoy a glass of wine. Staff build a fire every day for guests to enjoy. After enjoying dinner at Stone Peak Restaurant, we decided to sit and enjoy the fire for awhile. Other restaurant guests did the same and it wasn't long before we made new friends and ended up talking the night away.

We chose a mountain view room in the main lodge for our weekend Rocky Mountain adventure. The Mountain View rooms have a large balcony overlooking the Athabasca Valley in Jasper National Park. The view is incredible. Since the mountain view rooms face west and look out across the valley the balconies are the perfect place for spectacular sunsets.

The Mountain View rooms at Overlander Mountain Lodge are so cozy and comfortable. We had a corner room on the top floor. Beyond the log cabin feel and the great view our room also had a gas fireplace. The rooms do not have televisions or phones making Overlander Lodge a great place to reconnect with nature. No need to worry though, there is still Wi-Fi.

A secondary building known as Miette has several other rooms to pick from. These rooms also have gas fireplaces and have property views. There are just mere steps from the main lodge and its spectacular mountain views.

Jasper National Park is a favourite destination for this Canadian Adventure Seeker. Jasper East, the area just outside of the park and Jasper National Park itself are fantastic outdoor playgrounds. Maybe next year I will check out the view from the top of the mountain behind me. I might have to train for that one though, it looks challenging, but I bet the view will be worth it.
